Samsung has released their Galaxy S6 handset in two variants this year, the regular Galaxy S6 model, and the ‘Edge‘ variant. The Galaxy S6 Edge sports almost identical internals to the Galaxy S6, but it features a curved display on both its left and right side. That being said, we’ve already seen a handful of Galaxy S7 rumors, even though the device probably won’t launch until March next year. Speaking of rumors, a new one just surfaced, read on.
According to a Korean publication, the Galaxy S7 will launch in two sizes next year. The report claims that Samsung intends to release the 5.2 and 5.8-inch variant of the Galaxy S7 next year, which is rather interesting. The report doesn’t really mention the ‘Edge’ variant of the device, just talks about the Galaxy S7 in general, and its size. That being said, some spec info has leaked as well from the same source. The Galaxy S7 will reportedly follow in Xperia Z5 Premium’s footsteps and feature a 4K display, though we don’t know if this regards both the 5.2 and 5.8-inch variants, or not. Based on the available info, the Galaxy S7 will also sport 4GB of RAM, and what’s even more interesting, the report claims that both of these devices will be launched before the end of the year.
This report might be somewhat accurate, but the latter part seems to be off. Samsung always announces their ‘Galaxy S’ flagship devices in Q1, usually March, so this timeframe just doesn’t fit. They did announce the Galaxy Note 5 earlier this year, but only 3 weeks early, so the Q4 2015 launch timeframe for the Galaxy S7 just doesn’t fit. Either way, we’ll surely see tons more rumors like this before Samsung announces their new flagship(s), as we do every year, so things should become clearer in the coming months. Either way, this rumor does sound quite interesting, Samsung has never launched two flagship smartphones at the same time before 2015, and it seems like Samsung is getting ready to change things up once again. We wonder where does this leave the ‘Edge’ variant of the device considering it’s hard to expect for Samsung to release 3 or 4 flagships at the same time, perhaps they intend to hold a separate event? Who knows, we’ll find out when the time comes, until then, stay tuned for further info.
